gnutar problem...?
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 03, '01 04:38:03PM

Please forgive me if this is a totally stupid mistake on my part, but my terminal application does not recognize "gnutar" as listed in "Step Two: Installation of mySQL", "3. Unpack MySQL".

What could I be doing wrong?

Adam,
You need to install the Developer tools that came with OSX. They are on their own CD. That should do it for you.

Assuming that the Developer Tools were installed, did you check to see if the "gnutar" application is in your PATH? It is commonly in /usr/bin... you can find out by using the "find" command:

> find /usr -name gnutar -print

The output should be:

/usr/bin/gnutar

Cheers.
